The concept of CIM is an enabling strategy restructuring that leads to a more competitive enterprise. It is not just performing efficient mass production, but seeking a coordinated development with all other partners through information exchange. CIM is not only a bottom-up technological development for individually installed islands of automation, but also a top-down strategic policy to reshape industry.
